Freeman Technology has added a range of new content to its website.
The latest information is relevant for engineers, formulators and researchers working in industries such as pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, metal powders and additive manufacturing.
The way in which powders behave defines their processability, and in many applications their value.
A new animation illustrates the wide range of variables that can influence powder flow and how Freeman Technology’s FT4 Powder Rheometer can be used to investigate their impact. The resulting data enables sensitive QC/QA, more efficient powder processing, and effective troubleshooting.
All three of Freeman Technology’s educational eBooks on the fundamentals of powder behaviour and characterisation are also now available for download.
The first, ‘An Introduction to Powders’, complements the animation with a detailed discussion of powder behaviour and the factors that influence it.
The second and third eBooks - ‘Choosing a Powder Tester’ and ‘The Value of Powder Testing’ - discuss how to identify the best tester for an industrial application and justify the associated investment.
Powder testers vary considerably in terms of industrial relevance and ability to deliver value and this can have a major influence on the return on investment associated with their purchase.
The extensive literature section of the Freeman Technology website has also been updated and now provides expert information on powder characterisation for all industries.
It also includes a wide range of published articles, conference papers and white papers.
